Registration is now open for MAPPA/MiAPPA 2013!
Dear MiAPPA Colleagues,
We invite you to register for the MAPPA/MiAPPA 2013 annual conference and exhibition as we join as facilities professionals on in Grand Rapids, Michigan from October 27-October 31.
As facilities management professionals, we play a vital role in the success of the higher education institutions. In order to stay current with the changes in the industry and re-energize our commitment to our profession join with colleagues from the mid-west region of APPA comprised of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin for an amazing event!
Our programming offerings this year will be centered on solutions for improvement, sharing of best practices, or innovative approaches relevant to facilities professionals throughout the educational community. We will be addressing such topical content as energy, finance, leadership, security/emergency preparedness and much more. You are encouraged to view the conference website at http://mappa.appa.org/annualmeeting.cfm, often to see the latest programmatic offerings.
Our host city of Grand Rapids has big-city excitement and natural splendor as well as cultural sophistication and small-town warmth. Grand Rapids is the home of John Ball Park, Belknap Hill, and the Gerald R. Ford Museum, the final resting place of the 38th President of the United States and former First Lady Betty Ford. Significant buildings in the downtown include the DeVos Place Convention Center, Van Andel Arena, as well as the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts. Along the Grand River guests of MAPPA/MiAPPA 2013 can visit symbolic burial mounds which were used by the Hopewell tribe, and much, much more!
We encourage you to visit MAPPA/MiAPPA 2013 today, view the latest programming updates, and register!
October is not too far off, so mark those calendars and we look forward to welcoming you in Grand Rapids!
